Store: German Repro Items: Paratrooper Helmet M37 Luftwaffe

M37 Model Fallschirmjägerhelm (Paratrooper Helmet) M38 Liner: This helmet is based on a very rare M37 model shell, with standard early type spanner helmet pins retained at the front and rear but has been modified using M38 liner. This was common practice in mid-late war when earlier produced models were pressed into service. As you can see the eagle decal is museum quality 2'd version and 99% intact. What makes this helmet even more impressive is that it started out as an original Luftwaffe Grey/Blue colour but was overpainted for winter warfare in white. This was most likely for the Russian capaign. It has been again over sprayed in Mediterranean (Monte Cassino), sand colour and has had very heavy wear. Notice the two M37 model strap retaining 'slots' at the side of the helmet and the M37 pattern liner holes. Also notice how the eagle has been overpainted but wear has exposed it almost fully, in addition to the sand that the Fallschirmjager has applied while the paint was still wet!

The inner lining is very well maintained yet aged, again to reflect the period of use and 60+ years of ageing. The lining rubber is black/grey to reflect a very early M38 lining. There are two stamps in the liner leather.

This helmet would make a superb item in your Fallschirmjäger collection. It would make a great filler till you get a genuine M37 camouflage helmet. Although this is very unlikely as there are only a handful that survived WW2. This is not a cheap paint job as found on most well known auction sites - effort and time has been spent to get it 'correct'!

This item comes in a suitable aged box and if desired you can have your (or the recipients), rank and name marked on the box!! A great present for the military collector!
